Though its a Miller Transfer, it does suffer from some unsolvable sound issues that are inherent with the recording. That "canned sound", too much treble and not enough Phil imho. Vocal distortion is kind of weird at times too.

A warm up for the smokin' NYE show the next next (most likely my favorite NYE Dead show, next to 76', 78', 84').

Smoking renditions of TLEO, Cumberland, LL>Sup. Any 80s show with a "Casey Jones" is notable. Solid energy level.

It would be great to hear some of that 2nd set Joan Baez material. It's candid to have that material from the New Years show, the next night, available on the archive.

Thanks for the upgrade CM. Please never stop. Your hard work is valued and appreciated.

...and show...once your ears EQ.

Was there that night...last second decision - just got into my car and dove - into a totally madcap front of auditorium melee.

No way did I think "walk-up sales," but the light streaming from the box office screamed out unto me, "yes, we have tickets!"

Once inside, a fairly nondescript show, marveled at how uninspired i was at the time -- just couldn't get into it thinking Joan Baez was going to be the highlight of the night for me. Eventually, way way eventually after that, feeling very non-plussed I believe I walked out a quarter of the way thru JBG.

And didn't give a hoot! Guess I'd had enuff GD.

But earlier, umm, hmm, well... first set songs like On the Road Again, Dire Wolf - fantastic. I was dancing and i didn't even know it.

Don't know what effect is on Jerry's vocals in Althea, but I dig it. It is prominent throughout, but not distracting.

Once my ears become acclimatized to this P.A. sound, the rest of the set becomes a surreal re-interpretation of animated suspension. Fortunately a blistering Might As Well propels me back into the realm of consciousness.

The entire second set is a dream.

Listening now to this masterpiece some 32 years later i now understand what i was missing.

Listening then listening now listening then

Listening now.

Finally,

Listening.
